5 Things that you are doing wrong for your skin


Skincare routines can be quite confusing for a gal. Often times you may read about some new way to keep your skin fresh and supple, only to find out that you are harming your skin in the long run. These common mistakes may not have such devastating effects, but occasionally, they can provide long term problems.

We all know that using collagen creams can be the secret of a youthful skin. Sometimes, using a face cream is not enough though. There are a lot of common misconceptions with regards to skincare. Let’s take a look at some of the things that you may be doing wrong for your skin.

1.       Drinking water from the bottle: Drinking a lot of water helps to keep your skin hydrated and moisturized. A lot of skin care experts would tell you that one of the first things you must do with regards to skin care is to drink a lot of water. However, few people know that drinking water directly from the bottle is actually bad for you. In the long run, this simple act would create wrinkles around your lips. A lot of people never actually think of this. Just the way frowning a lot would give you wrinkles, this also has long term effects.

2.       Applying sunscreen only to your face: This is a common error made by women. Sunscreen is not meant for just your face, and most people know this but go ahead anyways. This act leads to having lighter skin on your face and darker skin throughout the rest of your body. It is essential to use sunscreen or a summer cream all over your body every single day. Even though it may be tiring, you must realize that this is for your own good.


3.       Taking very long, very hot showers: Hot showers are very refreshing, and they get even more refreshing when the weather is cold. However, when you stay in the shower for too long, you are getting rid of your skin’s natural oils. This would leave your skin dry and itchy. If you want to have healthy skin, use lukewarm water or don’t stay in the water too long.

4.       Exfoliating a little too much: Exfoliating helps to rid your skin of its dead cells and expose a fresher and much lighter skin tone. Doing this too much may have adverse effects on your skin. It can get addictive when you see the initial results gotten from exfoliating, but try not to do this too frequently.

5.       Getting too little sleep: Sleep is the body’s natural way of rectifying errors and rebuilding dead cells. If you are overworking yourself and not getting enough rest, your skin would start to age quicker, and you wouldn’t look as fresh as people that are getting enough sleep.

Reunion At Museum Restaurant At Starling Mall

CLASSMATES REUNION... but not from my year.  i just tagged along with my sister who wanted my company that evening.  She was going to meet up with some of her classmates at The Starling mall.  I did not want to drive there, taking Grab is a much easier and practical choice, considering it was rush hour in the evening.  Furthermore, I am not familiar with the roads... both of us might panic on the federal highway.  LOL... 
Having someone to take us there is so stress free, we only have to pay RM20 for the ride.  :)  Our first time to Startling Mall and being made familiar by one of the bloggers, Phong Hong who used to post up her lunch meals taken from there.  We were supposed to meet up at 7pm but we reached there an hour earlier to "survey" the shops and ended up buying a "bit."  Blame it on my sister who always like to give positive comments most of the time!   The dinner was held at The Museum.... Originated from Ipoh actually and how there is a branch here in …

Caring And Sharing At Limestone, Regal Lodge, Ipoh

IMPROMPTU GATHERING.... Nothing was planned beforehand, it was only at the last minute that we received call to have lunch at Limestone Cafe, inside Regal Lodge.  It was my first time there to have set lunch.  The menu prices were reasonable, around RM15.90 for the main dish, RM3 for a bowl of soup and RM2 for ice cream.  Other than that, coffee, tea and soft drinks are free.  
We were there not so much for the food but for the ambiance... we practically had the whole cafe to ourselves during that lunch hour.  Only one or two tables were occupied and we spent more than two hours there since it was a Friday long hour lunch for my working colleagues.  After a few months absence from me, it was wonderful to catch up with my ex-colleagues again!  
I was super hungry by lunch time and I felt like eating almost anything in the menu. We ended up ordering one main dish each and then sharing them with one another so that we could taste a bit of this and that..... 
I felt like eating Aglio Oli…

Famous Wanton Mee At New Hoong Kee, Bandar Sri Damansara

BREAKFAST FEAST..  Best meal of the day is always my first meal because I know I am able to tuck in as much as my stomach can accept.  I eat a lot in the mornings and then slowly dwindle by the end of the day.  As the saying goes, eat like a king in the morning and like a pauper in the evenings.  This is what I normally do nowadays, not because I wanted to, but it is my own body system that tune me this way.  Though I deny I am old but the body says otherwise... LOL...

On this morning, we went to New Hoong Kee in Bandar Sri Damansara, my sibling said this is currently his favourite place.  And after trying, I know why.... the food we ordered, all turned out good and tasty, even the curry reminded me of my good old days!
Managed to catch the name otherwise I wouldn't be able to tell this story now...  My type of curry... I can go without the chicken... Just the other ingredients will do fine for me.. I like the way they cook this curry... Heard the BBQ pork is tasty too... melt in …
